By Thanjavaur Sri Shankara Iyer
Translated by P. R. Ramachander
Ragam Nalina kanthi
Natha jana palini, nalinakanthi navarasa kala rasike, Ambike.
Mada Matha gaja gamini Shive,
Mamava sathatham Janani, maaye.
Parama krupakari bhaktha Manohari,
Pankaja Nethri, parama pavithra,
Marakatha varna Sri Parameshwari,
Madhurya vaag vilasini, Shankari.
Oh goddess who looks after her devotees,
Oh connoisseur of nine arts with pretty shine, Oh mother.
Oh consort of Shiva who walks like an exuberant elephant,
Oh goddess of illusion who is always mother to me.
Oh shower of divine mercy, Oh pretty one to her devotees,
Oh Lotus eyed one, Oh divinely pure Goddess,
Oh Parameshwari with the color of emerald,
Oh Consort of Shankara who shines with sweet words.
